Lochia after 10 days

I gave birth to my daughter 10 days ago and am still having red lochia.  This morning, it was still very red, and seemed to have a bit of mucus in it.  It has not yet "lightened" as all descriptions of it I have read.  I am not soaking through pads or passing clots, just still bleeding red (albeit not bright, fresh blood red.  It is a bit darker.)  If it makes any difference, I am breastfeeding and on high blood pressure medication.
Is this something that warrants attention, or does this fall into the realm of "everyone is different?"
